It's About People

Shawn Kelman CPA, CGA


I have worked in public accounting for more than 20 years. Before joining GBA LLP in August of 2015, I worked for another local firm for almost 18 years, but decided a change was needed to get back to working with a firm that cares about their clients and doesn’t treat them like a number.  Small and midsize owner-operated businesses is where my main focus and passion lies, as well as assisting clients with personal taxes and other accounting needs.  GBA’s focus on technology and future forward-thinking, as well as being able to be a part of helping GBA LLP grow, are big reasons I am here now and happy again doing what I do.

I received my CGA in April of 2006 after graduating from Fanshawe College and am now also a designated member under the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario (CPA).

I was born and raised in Georgetown and am a graduate of Georgetown District High School and now reside in Milton with my two children.  I enjoy fishing with my kids, playing golf and watching movies (as you will see by the shelf in my office). I also love watching my children participate in sports like climbing, baseball and wrestling.  When I’m not in the office, I love camping and road trips with my kids.
